The Crucible

How does Danforth use irony in act three of the Crucible when talking to Nurse?

DANFORTH: No, old man, you have not hurt these people if they are of good conscience. But you must understand, sir, that a person is either with this court or he must be counted against it; there be no road between. This is a sharp time, now, a precise time - we live no longer in the dusky afternoon when evil mixed with good and befuddles the world. Now, by Bod's grace, the shining sun is up, and them that fear not light will surely praise it. I hope you will be one of those. Marry Warren suddenly sobs. She‘s not hearty, I see.
